there is only going to be one resident per unit at any given time. so based on that, in our transportation analysis, we did account for 24 residents, one manager, for a total of 25 residents. we also accounted for visitors in the transportation analysis. under ceqa, we analyze a project as proposed by the project sponsor, who has stated that there are going to be 25 residents at one time. commissioner antonini but there -- commissioner antonini: but their guests allowed? >> there are guests allow. previously, they allow for overnight guests. in secret, we look at the change between previous conditions and the proposed projects, and in analyzing the project, the number of overnight guests was negligible between the two projects. commissioner antonini: i guess the appellants were speaking more to the impacts to their residents, because i believe they referred to some additional environmental analysis that has to be done when people who are public tenants and have to have adequate housing, and the analysis has to include whether they are overcrowded or not. you know, if we had 48 people there
to sell your units. matter of fact, sometimes the prices go up because of this. that has not been the case. president olague: thank you. >> hi, i am pam squires, and i am supportive of the 16 units of affordable housing at the edward. i am here today to speak to you about the outrageous cost disparity between our construction project at 3190 scott street and the proposed edward remodel. i have these to hand out. the cost per square foot of the 3190 scott street is $285. the proposed cost of the word is $1120 per square foot. that is not monopoly money. this is real taxpayer dollars. my money and your money. we should really take a close look at this. the edward costs are four times that of a luxury building directly across the street at 3190 scott street, and the etter -- and the edward is one- quarter the size. it has 25 bedrooms, ours has 24. we have to dozens were feet of open space, they have none, we have parking, they have none. this is my issue, the cost. i am all for it, but i am finished playing monopoly par. president olague: thank you. david, george, michael williams, followed b
in addition to that, i had been given reports that she has keys to at least one other unit that she is regularly seen going in and out of. i have reason to believe that she does have access to shower and bath facilities in the building. could i prove that, probably not? commissioner garcia: what does the code provide for? what does it require you to do in that situation? >>-only know that it requires us to give them notice of what we are doing. >> for instance, when there will be a major innovation -- renovation, there has to be fees paid. in addition to the rest that they will have to pay has to be met, all of that is new to you? >> that is when there is a long- term -- i can assure you that has suggested that she be relocated for a month, it would have been raised as an issue to try to make too big of a project. all you are trying to do is to force her to move. commissioner garcia: how does the code to find long-term? one night would be long term without a bathroom. >> her bathroom would not be usable, but -- she would have a place that she could go. we're talking about the port-a
on march 25, 2000 a 11th of a permit to alter of building, remove the illegal units her parents, illegalize rooms and a ballthroom on ground floor, interior remodel and horizontal addition. >> my wife and i purchased a property in 2009, thinking it was a single-family home but we could renovate and live in the entire the building, and over the last year and nine months, we learned about this tenant rights and other things like this, and when we purchased it, we did not know about a violation and what the expired permit men to. -- permit meant. at some point in 2006, the landlord applied for a permit to remove the downstairs unit and make it legal, just to remove its superiot. eventually, the permit was revoked by the board of appeals, and they got a new permits that made it illegal, and that permit expired before we purchased the property. we purchased it a few months later, not knowing this, so we were going through the process of assessment, and applying for our permanent. we thought everything was going to be fine, and eventually, i reach the planning department, who had already seen our
sponsor. the first one is as was presented. the affordable units will be done on site and that is great. it will be proposed, mentioned as a rental project although i am sure it will be -- as projects are. you have had some opinions because of the fact that density bonus as part of the eastern neighborhoods is the ability to avoid problems with costa hawkins or palmer considerations. it works the you ran it through and got opinions and you feel confident it is okay and you have a backup plan if for some reason is not in regards to that. those details can be worked out. i hope it does work out and you're able to do the 20% on site. there was a concern about height. it sounds like when we did eastern neighborhoods, and any revisions the supervisors might have done, the highest was decided at a certain height. 68 feet is compliant and there was a question, maybe someone answer me about the additional structures that will be above. there was a concern raised it will be 84 feet. is that accurate or not accurate? is it allowed that your official height is 68 but the additional height is thing
that it was the building permit that had been appealed. >> and it references work and multiple units? >> hit references 342. the other permit, i would like to talk about that as well, but the appellate has not shown up for it. >> you can provide us with the appropriate context. go ahead. >> i would like to speak about the permit. it seems like it is remodeling a bathroom for plumbing. it goes on to say that it will comply with a a different complaints with notices of violation. when i looked at this permit, i would have problems with the way the permit was issued because it was not specific for all the work that would be required for the notices of violation. the rear stairs need to be replaced. there is another that is ready for pickup for that. one of these complaints references the remodel. it would not allow you to remodel four units. i am not sure it got issued by the department, there have been inspections on that one. i believe it was for 340. that is the downstairs unit that we spoke of an earlier. there are problems with the permit. the date is may 4. >> i am assuming that based on the permit numb
harbor because he wanted the united states to be involved very much and fdr wanted to get us into the war so they worked hand in hand to do everything they could to get the united states into the war. they have a special relationship but had no incentive to lie to each other. >> host: politically, why do leaders find it easier to lie to their own public and other leaders? >> guest: it is simple. it is easiest to lie when there is trust between two groups. in international politics, there isn't much trust between any two states. has therefore it is hard to live because the the other side is distrustful. when you deal with your own public, in most cases the publix tend to trust their leaders thinking they're looking out for their own good. look at the president of united states thinking he tries to protect us. it is a rough-and-tumble business and a leader is doing the best to maintain the security of the country. there is a certain level of trust between the public and the leadership and whenever that this stage there is that element of trust the possibility of waging a lie is very great.

of documenting everything that was happening as the war and folded and because my unit, which was one of the few unmanned aerial squadrons in the whole war, not just the marine corps but throughout combat operations, it was a really unique type of thing that we were doing at the time. it was the first time that we have employed uav's or drones in the capability so i think people were very excited to get our story out and i perceive a lot of positive praise from my colleagues surprisingly. i thought they would be very critical of it but i think that they are happy that their story is being told, because it is highlighting a piece of history really that a lot of people don't know exists. >> host: take us through this, because let's first discuss. you know, women have been in all of our major wars all the way from iraq to you and jessica lynch is the first p.o.w., woman taken in iraq for example. so let's go back to this whole issue because as you know one of the things i have been working on as the ranking woman on all the military issues in the house of representatives and for 15 years now my ent
commission and it includes 18 dwelling units, three ground floor commercial units and 23 parking spaces. the building is a corner lot and street. the project actually recently finished construction and received its certificate of occupancy on june 24, 2010. the project proposes to modify conditions of the original approval motion to allow the two existing on-site affordable dwelling units to convert from rental to ownership units. regarding public comment for this case, the department received a letter of support for this project from the mayor's office of housing as well as a letter of support from an owner-occupant in the subject building. the department is recommending approval with conditions based on the following, that due to the recent legal cases in california regarding affordable housing, the planning code currently does not permit on-site affordable unit to be rental units unless it meets specific criteria. according to the mayor's office of housing, rental units and ownership buildings are not preferred from a lending standpoint because owners in such difficulties can -- buil

of what course is the u.s. going to chart? >> guest: i'm not going to compare the united states to these, but nazi germany and napoleon tried to rule by main force. it doesn't work very well. the persians ruled subtly and indirectly by managing various players and controlling them and bringing them to the point where they wanted that. drama and subtlety to now has not been a hallmark of american diplomacy however. >> guest: we are a very young country and it's only been 20 years, and i regard december 31, 1991 as the breakpoint in history here first moment in which in five years in which there was no european global power. and second it was the mode of the united states quite by surprise that there were stunned it happened. and it takes time to build institutions. it takes time to build political culture. it's not surprising that the first 10 years everyone was tv and history, we're not going to have any wars, then suddenly 9/11 happened and it's all about the war that would never end in the islamic world. the united states is off balance. it didn't expect, that's why said this is the un
, and when our goal is to make this building seismically safe, and when every unit gets a working bathroom, accessible showers on every floor come and that people can live here while that is happening, that is an incredible, complex thing to do in the heart of our city in the tenderloin. tried to do that in another community, -- try to do that in another community. it is hard. you need a tight-knit community. i was walking around here this morning. it is all smiles. though they know that they have got a great place to be, for a long time. the significance of this rehabilitation has other aspects of our wealth and human for the city. its seismic upgrades. extremelif you know me, one of my passions is to be sure we are ready for the next earthquake. for folks who could not move elsewhere, to feel safe in the building they were a part of, helped to contribute to making seismically safe, and our earnings and ability to have earthquake insurance cover them, we have a fantastic story to tell here. in addition, it has added 105 units to the whole 10-year end homeless program that we committed to.
these units -- though this one project may seem small, it's a strand in a larger rope, which is part of a larger social safety net, and all of the strands of that net reinforce each other. it's often an invisible net. there was just a national survey completed which showed that almost half of americans who are beneficiaries of government social programs believe, in fact, that they have never been the beneficiary of a government social program. so the fact that that net is invisible might remind you that you yourself, at some point, have taken advantage of some aspect of our social safety net. all of us do at some point in our lives, or we are close to someone who has. so our personal network is buoyed up by that social safety net and supported by it. so you may feel, commissioners, that your decision this afternoon is a decision about other people's needs. but in fact, i would ask you to remember that that safety net supports us all, and by approving this project you can help keep that safety net whole. thank you. president olague: thank you. >> i had not planned to speak. i'd ask yo

't be in these schools are finding themselves very much on the front line and that means support units that have females and and traditional roles that people didn't sign up to be in the infantry are finding themselves on this front line. >> host: traditionally we felt combat with infantry use, so now we find this jessica lange, who was a supply person on a convoy, and she finds herself in a firefight, and she finds herself as a first p.o.w. which i want to go back to in a little while because you were involved in some of that. you see someone like ruby up in mosul on the day that the bomber got through the front line and went from the cafeteria and blew up the place and was one of the people blown out. the reality is i would say that is the front line almost any place is a front line if you were in a place like iraq or afghanistan. >> guest: yeah, and surprisingly, you know, women are often not acknowledge for serving those rules because there is no combat role for the women, and whether that's because of current policy, or just because the women are suddenly finding that because of the way that the wa
policy and politics in earlier careers and now it's the focus of the united states and its relationship with the world. how do you view the mission? because you said you wanted to restore america's credibility, its influence, its respect, and its power. >> well, i think that's exactly right, and that is our core goal at this point. we came into office in 2009 after a difficult period for american foreign policy. there has been for a variety of reasons-- ani'm not making a partisan commentere, just a factual assessment-- there had be a diminution in american prestige and power around the world. we had spent a tremendous amount of american cital on the war in iraq. we had had a financial crisis in 2008 which cost the ited states around the world. and there's a natural dynac that exists as against the leading power in the world. and our focus at the outset was to restore america's great prestige and authority and we went about this working through four or five lines. one, a real focus, again, on alliances. our alliances in europe has been friday frayed . asking ourself this is question. wh

by the united states. the war powers resolution requires the president to terminate the introduction of u.s. forces into hostilities in libya on may 20, 60 days after he notified congress of the commencement of the operation. the administration declined to offer any explanation as to its view that u.s. forces were not engaged in hostilities in libya until nearly one month later on june 15. even at that point, the administration + expedition was limited to four perfunctory extent -- sentences in a 32-page report. they focus on the question of whether the u.s. casualties are likely to occur. if this definition of hostilities were accepted, president would have significant scope to conduct warfare in remote means such as missiles and neutrons and would deny congress a say in decisions to go to war. including the impact on strategic interest on our relations with other countries and their ability to meet competing national security priorities. the administration's report also implies that because allied nations are flying most of the missions over libya, the united states operations are not s
